Barthel waits until they’re over. “Apparently, you people think we are here to entertain you.” But Barthel assures them, they’re not. Imperium stands on the mat that is sacred, to restore honor to this sport. Aichner takes the mic to speak next, but fans chant “We Want Wrestling!” Aichner says that as we saw last week, “our numbers have increased. Our unit is now complete.” Fans troll Aichner with “Who Are Ya?” Aichner says fans will respect Imperium’s values. NXT UK will obey. Fans now chant, “We Want Peter!” and “Bruiserweight!” in reference to Pete Dunne.
But Wolfe speaks third, saying, “When I saw the opportunity to join Imperium, I had no doubt at all. It felt right to join Imperium. It felt right because this unit treats professional wrestling with respect.” Wolfe says that this brand, NXT UK, is not a playground. And Imperium WILL protect the legacy of this sport. Walter takes the mic now and speaks. “Talking about kids on the playground, Travis Banks. You may ahve a WWE United Kingdom Championship opportunty, but things will be done the way we want them to be done!” Therefore, Johnny Saint made the match for next week! But look at the group of men in the ring with Walter! They put Pete Dunne away, so Travis may be a brave young man, but he is a fool if he thinks he stands a chance! “We are Imperium! And this mat is SACRED!”
But here comes the Kiwi Buzzsaw to respond! Travis Banks is on stage with a mic of his own, to tell Imperium that if they want to do this next week, he has no problem. He has worked years for such an opportunity! Walter faces the Buzzsaw, and Banks promises Walter will need to bring everything he’s got! Will Banks tear down Imperium already? Or is not even years of hard work enough to overcome an Austrian Anomaly?
NXT UK Media catches up with Noam Dar.
The Scottish Supernova finishes up a call with his mum as reporters asked about his recent behavior, such as tricking Mark Andrews into thinking their rematch was a friendly one. What does he say to those claiming he’s “taking a dive?” Dar is offended! He just came back from a career-threatening injury! He should be getting a medal for this! Dar then says hey to his pal, Kenny Williams. Well things aren’t going his way, so Dar will give him some advice. It’s about time Kenny… How to put it? Dar illustrates it by holding up his arm. This is a wing, and there’s plenty of room for Kenny to be under it. Kenny tells Dar that this wing is gonna the way his knee did acting like this.
Dar tells Kenny to calm down. He’s just trying to help a friend. Maybe Kenny can become the perfect support act, and then his luck will turn around. Just think about it. Talk soon, bye bye. Kenny lets his “friend” head off in the wind, but will this attitude problem blow over between them?
The Hunt VS Gallus!
Just as Wild Boar and Primate returned victoriously to NXT UK, Wolfgang and Mark Coffey made it clear the Tag Team Division would be their kingdom! But now, Gallus will have to face these wild animals fair and square in the squared circle! Will Mark and Wolfgang survive The Hunt?
The teams sort out, and Primate starts against Mark Coffey. The bell rings and the brawl is on! Mark and Primate don’t back down so Wolfgang and Wild Boar rush in! Brawls all over the ring, the referee isn’t sure what to do! He tries to get them to sort out, but Gallus gets thrown out! The Hunt fires up and DOUBLE DIVE! The brawling just continues against the barriers! Primate clobbers Wolfgang then goes after Mark. Primate puts Mark in the ring but Mark comes back with forearms. Mark and Primate continue to brawl, but Primate powers Mark to the corner. Boar tags in and he stalks Mark to drop a back senton! Boar drops another, and fans cheer his wild style.
Wild Boar drags Mark up for big haymakers but Mark gets to ropes. The ref tries to get Boar back but Mark gives Boar a sucker punch! Mark boots Boar then full nelsons to a slam! Tag to Wolfgang who hits Primate before giving Boar a flying splash! Wolfgang keeps on Boar with furious hands while Primate protests. The ref keeps Primate back and Wolfgang wrenches Boar’s neck. Wild Boar endures and fans rally up. Wild Boar works his way up but Wolfgang shoves him to the Gallus corner. Tag to Mark and Wolfgang whips Boar back in. Mark throws body shots and kicks, then clubs Boar down. Cover, TWO! Mark stomps Boar and drops knees. Fans rally up for “Boar! Boar!” but Wolfgang tags in.
Gallus mugs Boar and Wolfgang wraps Boar in a half nelson. Boar endures while fans duel, “Let’s Go, Gallus!” “Gallus Sucks!” Wolfgang thrashes Boar around in a grounded full nelson! Boar still endures, and works his way back up and powers Wolfgang to the corner. But Mark tags in and boots Wolfgang down! Mark drops knees then wraps on a chinlock and half nelson. Mark almost has a cobra clutch but fans rally up. Boar fights but Mark knees him back down. Tag to Wolfgang and Gallus mugs Boar more. Wolfgang puts on another full nelson, then throws Boar hard into the corner. Tag back to Mark and the mugging continues. Tag to Wolfgang, and Mark feeds Boar to his scoop. But Boar slips out to shove Wolfgang into Mark! Hot tag to Primate!
Primate rallies on Gallus as fans cheer! He stalks Wolfgang to a corner to fire off hammering fists! Primate whips corner to corner for a BIG clothesline, to an exploder! Primate fires up with the fans, but he has to hit Mark down first. Wolfgang hits Primate then whips, but Primate reverses to back drop! Primate wants Wolfgang to stand, and fans bark, but Wolfgang tosses Primate out! Mark tackles Boar into steel steps! Gallus gets Primate in and Mark tags. Mark feeds Primate to Wolfgang’s scoop, enziguri powerslam! Cover, Gallus wins!
Winners: Gallus, Mark Coffey pinning
The Hunt is downed by the divide and conquer strategy! Gallus rolls on, but will they truly make the NXT UK Tag Team Division their kingdom?
Joe Coffey comes out to celebrate with his team, but then sees Wild Boar getting up. Gallus goes after Boar, 3v1! Fans boo as Mark and Wolfgang hold Boar up for All the Best for the Bells! Primate revives but the Coffey Brothers punch and stomp him down. But here comes Bomber Dave Mastiff! Mastiff owes Gallus for costing him a title shot! But Gallus runs away! When and where will Gallus have to answer to the big bad Bomber from Black Country?
Backstage interview with Moustache Mountain.
It is official! After hearing out the fans, GM Johnny Saint grants Trent Seven and Tyler Bate a rematch with Grizzled Young Veterans for the NXT UK Tag Team Championships! Seven and Bate are happy that this is finally happened. It was back in January that they had that first match. But to be fair, Moustache Mountain has been busy. Where is their focus going into this match? “If you want to be the absolute pinnacle and the absolute peak of your industry, then there’s gonna be certain distractions.” Their plate was full, with Gallus and now Imperium. But the tag titles are now their focus. They will prove to the NXT UK Universe and the world that Moustache Mountain is the best. Will it be Seven & Bate who are soon to be recognized as the best team on NXT UK?
NXT UK Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Battle Royal!
The Lightning from Down Under is still THE NXT UK Women’s Champion, but after dealing with Nina Samuels, there’s plenty of #ToniTime to go around. Nina still has a shot in this battle royal, but so does Xia Brookside, Candy Floss, Killer Kelly, Isla Dawn, Rhea Ripley, Piper Niven, Kay Lee Ray, Jinny and The Alpha Female, Jazzy Gabert. With such fierce competition in the ring, who is the last woman left to go after Toni Storm’s “Shiny Shiny?”
NXT UK returns as KLR makes her entrance, followed by Piper Niven. Piper eyes Jazzy as she’s already in the center of the ring. But then Piper’s attention turns to the instigator, the Mosh Pit Kid, Rhea Ripley, as she makes her entrance. Rhea and Piper have wanted at each other in the ring, this might be their opportunity to do just that. With all the participants in the ring, the bell rings and the fight is on!
Jinny goes at Isla while Jazzy seems completely untouched. Perhaps no one wants to challenge the Alpha Female’s power just yet. But then Candy Floss and a pair of newcomers from the NXT UK tryouts gang up on her. They’re not enough and Jazzy fights her way out! She mule kicks Rhio McDonnell and back elbows Winona Makanji then lariats Candy down. Jazzy throws and ELIMINATES Rhio! Winona tries again, but then immediately regrets it. Jazzy grabs her with one hand but Winona fights out. Jazzy tries the other hand but again Winona fights out. So Jazzy grabs Winona with both hands to knee her low and throw her out. Winona holds on but gets a CHOP! Jazzy ELIMINATES Winona!
Jazzy turns her attention to Candy Floss for furious strikes! KLR CHOPS Xia while Isla fights off both Nina Samuels and Jinny. Jazzy lifts Candy in the Canadian rack, for a Dominator Slam! And a hard one. Jinny sees this, and takes Candy for herself, to ELIMINATE Candy! The Spoiled Princess gets on the board but with help from Jazzy. Xia headscissors KLR out but through the middle rope! KLR is still in the match. Jinny goes after Xia while Jazzy knocks down Killer Kelly. Rhea goes after Isla while Nina goes after Piper. Jazzy and Jinny regroup and Jazzy clobbers Xia. Jazzy drags Xia up for another, but Xia dodges! Jinny is on Xia but gets a boot while Piper lifts Jazzy! Piper puts Jazzy on the apron, and headbutts her! Xia sweeps the legs and ELIMINATES Jazzy!! The Alpha Female is furious and the Fierce Fashionista is shocked!
Jinny has no choice but to be alone in this. And everyone else knows it. Xia, Piper and Isla give Jinny forearms and kicks, then Piper throws Jinny hard into buckles! Piper splashes Jinny, then feeds her to a double trophy lift from Xia and Isla! Together, they throw Jinny out! Jazzy saves her boss by carrying her to the other side. Referees tell Jazzy to leave, and she finally does. But Jinny runs at Xia to be put on the apron! Xia forearms and ELIMINATES Jinny! Including KLR, who is still down and out on the outside, Xia is among the final seven in this match! Xia goes after Killer Kelly to help out Piper while Nina has Isla in the corner. Rhea is down but crawling to clear space in the ring.
Rhea and Nina work together on Isla, but Piper runs in to pull Nina off. Piper CHOPS Nina while Kelly clubs Xia. Isla elbows Rhea away and Nina hits Piper back. Nina hoists Piper up but Piper gets to the apron. Piper headbutts Nina down, then gets back in with an elbow drop! Nina gasps for air while Kelly brawls with Rhea. Rhea shoves Kelly to then flapjack her on ropes and throw her over! Rhea ELIMINATES Killer Kelly! Meanwhile, Isla and Xia fight with each other, because there are no friends in battle royals. But then the friends realize they have a greater enemy in Rhea! They go after her with forearms and stomps while Nina survives Piper’s shoves. Rhea fights her way out but Isla and Xia are right back on her. Piper and Rhea end up back to back as they fight off Nina, Xia and Isla.
Rhea scoops Xia to ram her into a Tree of Woe! She stomps away but Isla saves Xia. But Rhea hits back, then throws and ELIMINATES Isla Dawn! Piper and Rhea spot each other, but Nina keeps on Piper. Piper throws and ELIMINATES Nina! Now Rhea and Piper can finally go toe to toe! Rhea SLAPS Piper but Piper SLAPS back! Rhea hits again, but so does Piper. The brawl picks up speed but Piper headbutts Rhea down! Piper runs corner to corner, CANNONBALL! She drags Rhea around, then climbs up, but Rhea anchors Piper’s feet! Rhea clubs Piper and shoves her to the apron. Rhea boots but misses! Piper drags Rhea out to join her and they brawl some more! Xia sees this, lines it up, and dropkicks them both! She ELIMINATES Piper AND Rhea! But everyone forgot about KLR!!
KLR gets in, and Xia notices the fans’ change in reactions! Xia turns around, and gets clobbered by KLR! Fans boo but KLR gives Xia a lift and a toss! KLR wins!!
Winner: Kay Lee Ray; NEW #1 Contender to the NXT UK Women’s Championship
They all forgot her again, but now they’ll all have to acknowledge KLR as the next challenger. Will KLR immortalize herself as the woman to dethrone Toni Storm?
A really good NXT UK right here! Ohno VS Kenny was a great opening match, Kenny did a lot better than I thought he would. But Ohno wins because one, his own story needs to continue, and two, it pushes Kenny’s story with Dar. Dar VS Kenny is going to be a really good match, too, and perhaps a great rivalry since both can be in the NXT UK and Cruiserweight Divisions. Ohno was also clever in reacting that way to Imperium. Imperium had a decent set of promos, and the fans were pretty rowdy in a good way during it. Travis Banks also has a decent promo, and it’s great to hear that we’re already getting the WWE UK Championship match. This is more of a reason to say Banks is just fodder until a bigger challenger shows up for Cardiff.
The Hunt VS Gallus was solid, but it was great to see Mastiff come to the rescue. I expect a Six Man Tag of Mastiff & The Hunt VS Gallus to happen soon. This also saves Mastiff for Cardiff, he’d be a great challenger for Walter, even if he doesn’t win. We already knew from Grizzled Young Veterans that the Download Festival would have the NXT UK Tag Team Championships on the line, but now we know for sure it’s with Moustache Mountain and not jobbers. This could mean title changes, which would be interesting since there’s still a lot of time before Cardiff. Perhaps that means Cardiff will have Moustache Mountain VS GYV VS Imperium’s Aichner & Barthel in a big Triple Threat. That kind of match could go any which way by my math.
That Women’s Battle Royal, while historic for NXT UK, was booked about any other battle royal tends to get booked. If it wasn’t already obvious KLR was going to be Toni’s next challenger after all the promos, being tossed out through the second rope and completely forgotten by the other competitors was another big indicator. It was great for Xia to eliminate Jazzy, Jinny, and both Rhea and Piper after those two had their own moments, and therefore giving Xia the most eliminations of the match, it was all just to get some Heel heat on KLR when she’s actually a well-liked superstar. I can’t be sure if KLR or Toni is the one to choose the time and place, but it has to be before Cardiff, right? KLR VS Xia could fit in for a fun match that could get KLR even more heat leading into that.
My Score: 8.3/10
Mitchell’s WWE 205 Live Results & Report! (6/18/19)

Just who is challenging for the Cruiserweight Championship?

- Oney Lorcan VS Ariya Daivari; Lorcan wins, by disqualification.
PLAY BY PLAY
Drake Maverick addresses the State of the Cruiserweight Contenders.
Last week’s Fatal 4 Way was an incredible match, but it ended with some controversy and confusion. A double cover between Akira Tozawa and Drew Gulak ended in a three count, and there was much discussion between the two referees and Maverick himself. And after a week of reviewing the footage, a final decision has been made: it was a draw! That means this Sunday, Tony Nese defends his Cruiserweight Championship in a Triple Threat! But there’s still plenty of action to look forward to tonight!
The Lucha House Part return to 205 Live to settle the score with the “Boscar winning” Samir & Sunil Singh. The Bollywood Boys swear they won Best Actors, but they want to be the best team in the Cruiserweight Division. #LightsCameraAndBollywoodAction, but will they lose when it’s #LuchaTime? Plus, the Persian Lion and Boston Brawler go one more round because their grudge has not been settled! Ariya Daivari lost one contender’s match and got a lot of stitches for it, but he cost Oney Lorcan in last week’s contender’s match. Who will cost the other more after they go head-to-head and punch for punch as tonight’s main event?
Lucha House Party VS The Singh Brothers!
Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik step up for #LuchaTime to show the Bollywood Boys that winning against a Slow White Cow and the Great Grandson of The Red Crab is nothing like facing a Golden Lynx and the King of the Ropes! Will the fiesta be the Summer blockbuster? Or will those “Boscars” motivate Samir & Sunil to become the brightest stars on 205 Live?
The teams sort out, and Lince starts with Samir. Kalisto rallies the fans with the matracas rattle and chants of “Lucha! Lucha!” Samir and Lince circle, and Lince dodges Samir’s rush. Lince throws haymakers and body shots, then headlocks. Samir powers out but gets run over! Lince runs, handsprings and springboards, but Samir gets clear to SLAP Lince. Samir dances too much and gets a CHOP! Lince CHOPS Samir to the corner then tags Metalik. Lince whips Metalik so that Metalik can whip Lince so that Lince can whip Metalik into Samir for a big clotheslnie! Metalik feeds Samir to Lince’s CHOP, then they combine for a slightly mistimed Wheelbarrow Bulldog. Cover, TWO!
Samir bails out but Metalik sees Sunil coming. Metalik dropkicks Sunil down and out, then has Lince come in. They both run to corners, but fake the Singh Brothers out with double backflips back into the ring! The Singh Brothers regroup and Metalik eggs Samir on. Samir tags Sunil in instead. Metalik kicks Sunil and tags Lince. They double whip Sunil for double hip tosses! Then Metalik becomes a human weapon, wheelbarrow leg drop! Lince hits the planking splash! Cover, TWO! Sunil survives and throws hands with Lince. Lince CHOPS Sunil down then puts him in a corner for buckle bumps. Lince whips Sunil corner to corner hard, then climbs up top! He leaps at Sunil for a big crossbody! Cover, TWO!
Lince watches Sunil in the corner, but still misses. Sunil runs into boots, but then Samir distracts Lince as he hops up. This allows Sunil to yank Lince off the top! Lince hits buckles as he falls, then Sunil tags Samir. The Singh Brothers stomp Lince out then Samir rains down rights. Samir lets up at the ref’s orders, but he brags with a swivel of the hips. Samir drags Lince up for a haymaker, then stomps him in the Bollywood corner. Tag to Sunil, and the brothers dance before stomping Lince more. The ref reprimands them but Sunil tags Samir. Samir drags Lince up for more clubbing forearms. Lince fights back but Samir kicks him down. Samir wraps on a chinlock and grinds Lince down.
Fans rally as Kalisto spins the matracas. Lince stands up and fights back, but Samir wrangles him back down. Lince pulls hair and that gets Samir to let go. Samir comes back to whip Lince hard into the corner. But Lince fights back! Sunil hits the steps and Samir runs into elbows and boots. Lince hurries, dodges Samir and sends Samir out of the ring! But Samir trips Metalik before the tag! Kalisto protests but Lince CHOPS Samir for Metalik. Sunil tags in and Samir whips Lince. The Singh Brothers combine, SUPERKICK to Russian Leg Sweep! Cover, but Metalik breaks the pin! Sunil drags Lince and tags Samir, and the brothers stomp Lince down. Samir toys with Lince and swivels those hips again.
Lince hits back with body shots but Samir clubs him down. Samir whips Lince but Lince handsprings to a Golden Rewind! Lince is dizzy but fans rally up. Lince and Samir crawl, hot tags to Sunil and Metalik! Metalik springboards up over Sunil but keeps moving. Sunil dodges Metalik’s handspring, but Metalik CHOPS him back. Metalik sees Samir coming and mule kicks him. Metalik uses the corner to acrobatically leap and dropkick Samir down! Sunil misses an elbow, Metalik runs onto the ropes and dropkicks Sunil down! Tag to Lince and he gives Metalik a boost for another dropkick! Sunil bails to the outside, Lince helps Metalik FLY onto Sunil!! Metalik puts Sunil in, Lince hits the Golden Shooting Star! Cover, but Samir breaks it!
Metalik springboards to drop an elbow on Samir! Lince and Sunil are left alone, but Sunil elbows Lince down. Sunil grabs a pinata, but Kalisto stops him from using Penelop as a weapon. But the pinata breaks! That’s not right. Sunil rolls Lince, holding tights!! The Singh Brothers win!!
Winners: The Singh Brothers, Sunil by pinfall
The Bollywood Boys ruin the fiesta but start their own party. Will Samir & Sunil celebrate all the way to a second “Boscar” win?
Noam Dar relaxes.
The Scottish Supernova sips a drink and reads a book, but notices the camera. “Hello, hello, hello!” Now, ever since that “unprovoked and digusting attack by Drew Gulak,” Dar has been staying on the sunny Spanish isle of Magaluf, rehabing and enjoying some “me time.” The lovely nurses have assured him that he’ll be more than fit and ready to “blast off again.” That is, only if Drake Maverick greatly improves the working conditions on 205 Live, and meets the very, very, very high standards of Mr. Supernova 11. Until then, Dar is staying-
Wait, THE Brian Kendrick is in Magaluf, too? What? Dar’s not- Oh, okay…! What a good friend Kendrick is to come all this way. Yes, the Man with a Plan is obviously a very good friend to check on that bum knee. Kendrick would love to stay and chat, but he has to catch a private jet to make it to California in time for his match in two minutes. Well, Dar can stay on Fantasy Island as long as he wants, but he’ll have to compete some time if he wants after the Cruiserweight Championship.
THE Brian Kendrick VS Russ Taylor!
The former Cruiserweight Champion doesn’t mind that his good pal, Akira Tozawa, is competing for the title instead of him. But he won’t want to stay out of the title scene for long. Will the Man with a Plan come up with a plan to get back in the race?
The bell rings and California cheers for one of their own. Kendrick offers Russ a handshake, but Russ isn’t so sure. He perhaps is familiar with Kendrick’s history. Russ slaps the hand away, but Kendrick gets mad! Kendrick intimidates Russ to a corner, but backs off. The two circle but now Russ offers a handshake with a snarky grin. Kendrick slaps that away and again shouts at Russ. Russ gets to the corner and Kendrick backs off, to give Kendrick a BIG sucker punch! Kendrick staggers away, but comes back with a dropkick! Kendrick throws furious hands in the corner, lets up, but comes back to throw more hands. He walks off his anger to then drag Russ up for a whip corner to corner. Russ hits buckles hard and Kendrick hits him with a forearm smash.
Kendrick rallies with more forearms, then roars as he throws big hands on Russ against ropes. Kendrick whips but Russ reverses, but Kendrick slides under to calf kick Russ down! Russ scrambles away but gets another calf kick! Kendrick grabs Russ for Sliced Bread! Cover, Kendrick wins!
Winner: THE Brian Kendrick, by pinfall
The veteran from Venice Beach snaps back to winning ways against the upstart Russ Taylor. Will Kendrick continue winning all the way back to another Cruiserweight Championship opportunity?
Backstage interview with Jack Gallagher.
The Extraordinary Gentleman lost to Chad Gable in Gable’s Cruiserweight Division debut, by a count-out. What is next for Gallagher in 205 Live? Well it was certainly bittersweet to lose even in his best effort. While Gallagher does not question the legitimacy of Gable’s win, he does hope Gable agrees that they need to settle things. In the meantime- Mr. & Mrs. Kanellis interrupt. Mike says Gallagher should be ashamed of his loss, because he was given a golden opportunity, but blew it. And he blew it because Gallagher couldn’t even get in the ring. That’s embarrassing. Almost as embarrassing as having a GM skipping work just to get one over on the WWE 24/7 Champion. It sounds funny, but Mike isn’t laughing anymore.
The problem here is guys like Gallagher are just dead weight. And that’s why WWE Executives worked so hard to keep people like Mike and Maria, because the WWE needs them. And if they decide to stay on 205 Live, Mike is done with being overlooked! Mike is done with the show being overlooked just because people like Gallagher keep dropping the ball. Gallagher responds by telling them they’re right. He’s been in a slump but he has an idea on how to get out of it. Gallagher gives Mike a golden opportunity to get a black eye in front of his wife. Mike would love to see him try. Gentleman VS Opportunist of Love, will this match happen with Maverick focused on his own matters?
Oney Lorcan VS Ariya Daivari!
The Persian Lion wants to make this match eye for an eye and ear for an ear, but he’ll have to go toe to toe and punch for punch with the Boston Brawler to do it! Will Daivari get even with the Fury of 205 Live? Or will he just get stitches on the other ear?
The bell rings and Daivari takes too long taking off his fancy shirt because Lorcan blasts him with a running European Uppercut! Lorcan keeps on Daivari with fast hands and feet in the corner! The ref counts and Lorcan lets up, but he doesn’t let Daivari get away. Lorcan CHOPS Daivari over and over in the corner, then rams an elbow in. Lorcan runs corner to corner to ram another elbow into Daivari, then keeps going. Daivari bails out and looks to retreat through the crowd! But Lorcan pursues and drags Daivari back to the ring! Daivari scrambles back out but Lorcan glares. Lorcan drags Daivari from the front row again and puts him back in. Daivari kicks Lorcan low then runs, but into Lorcan’s dropkick!
Lorcan rains down rights on Daivari, then clobbers him with clotheslines and elbows! Daivari is dazed but Lorcan looms behind him. Lorcan waistlocks but Daivari fights out. Daivari runs but Lorcan follows, only to get a SUPERKICK! Lorcan ends up in a corner and Daivari runs in, only to get an elbow. Lorcan hops up but Daivari stops him witha CHOP! Daivari CHOPS more, then climbs up to join Lorcan. Daivari goes after the arm, for a SUPER armbar DDT! Lorcan writhes as he clutches that arm. He gets to a corner and the ref checks on him. Lorcan won’t let this stop him, but Daivari brags to the fans, “Who’s the man now?!” Daivari goes after Lorcan and stomps him down. The ref backs Daivari off and Lorcan gets to a different corner.
Daivari is right on Lorcan and that bad arm with a shoulder breaker. Daivari snapmares then drops knees on Lorcan’s arm. Fans boo but Daivari soaks it up. Daivari sits Lorcan up for a keylock and thrashes him around. Lorcan endures and fans build to a rally. Daivari talks trash in Farsi but Lorcan powers up off the fan energy. Lorcan fights out with body shots but Daivari clubs him back. Daivari scoops but Lorcan slips out. Lorcan wants the Half ‘n’ Half but Daivari slips through to hammerlock and throw Lorcan into buckles! Lorcan clutches his arm again, but Daivari is right on him in the corner. Daivari drags Lorcna up by his ears, then wrenches through to another hammerlock. He throws Lorcan into buckles again! Fans boo but Daivari tells them to shut up.
Daivari stomps Lorcan then drags him up by his beard. Lorcan CHOPS Daivari back! Daivari stomps Lorcan down again, then snapmares Lorcan back to a keylock. Lorcan endures again, and fans rally up. Lorcan powers up again, pries at the hold, and fights back with body shots. Daivari knees low then whips, but Lorcan holds ropes to deny the dropkick! Lorcan rolls Daivari to his feet, but Daivari arm-drags the Half ‘n’ Half away. Daivari kicks but Lorcan blocks it! Lorcan grits his teeth with wild eyes to spin Daivari. Daivari dodges and gets the Million Dollar Dream! Lorcan endures Daivari’s hold as Daivari drags him down to the mat!
Fans rally and Lorcan keeps reaching. But Lorcan starts to fade! He fights to stay awake, and gets his second wind! Lorcan powers back to his feet, and powers Daivari into buckles! Daivari holds on so Lorcan tries again in another corner. Daivari still holds on, so Lorcan rams Daivari again! Lorcan is free, and throws haymakers! He rocks Daivari but Daivari swings back. Lorcan blocks but with his bad hand! Lorcan reels back and Daivari reels him in for an armbar code breaker! Daivari runs in for a BIG clothesline in the corner! Daivari hoists Lorcan up, cross-armdrag bomb, the Iconoclasm! Cover, TWO!! Lorcan lives and Daivari can’t believe it! Daivari keeps his focus as he drags Lorcan to a drop zone. Daivari climbs up top, leaps, but his Persian Splash FLOPS!
Fans rally up for Lorcan as Daivari clutches his ribs. Lorcan grits his teeth and runs corner to corner, for a back elbow! He keeps moving and hits another! And then the running Blockbuster! Cover, TWO!! Daivari lives but Lorcan doesn’t let that deter him! Lorcan ignores his arm’s pain as he grits his teeth again. Fans fire up and give Lorcan power! Lorcan CHOPS Daivari, and again! Another CHOP, but Daivari kicks back! Daivari CHOPS Lorcan then throws ofrearms, and repeat! Lorcan grabs Daivari for blunt EuroUppers! Lorcan runs for another! Daivari staggers, but SUPERKICKS Lorcan back!
Daivari wrenches the arm but Lorcan blocks the shoulder breaker into a Half ‘n’ Half! But Daivari slumps out of the ring! Lorcan doesn’t care, he FLIES onto Daivari! The Fury of 205 Live has reached his fever pitch! Lorcan drags Daivari up but Daivari JABS him with a chair!
Winner: Oney Lorcan, by disqualification
The Persian Lion resorts to cutting his losses with that chair shot. But Daivari doesn’t care, this isn’t about wins or losses, but about hurting Lorcan! He throws Lorcan over the announce desk! The ref reprimands Daivari but Daivari doesn’t care what he says. Daivari goes to Lorcan on the other side of the desk and puts him on top to rain down angry rights. Fans boo and jeer but Daivari doesn’t care about them, either. Daivari drags Lorcan off the desk and brings him around to throw into steel steps! Lorcan hits the steel with knees and still flies over the top! Daivari gets in Lorcan’s face with trash talk, then drags him up for even more brutality. They go up the ramp, and Daivari throws Lorcan into the LED boards!
More referees rush out to stop this, but Daivari drags Lorcan back up. LION LARIAT!! Daivari glares daggers into Lorcan even as Lorcan is down and out. Is the Persian Lion satisfied with what he’s done to the Boston Brawler? Will Lorcan be able to come back for payback?
The Cruiserweight Champion and his challengers speak on the coming Triple Threat.
Tony Nese starts by saying that his start in 205 Live is nothing to brag about. Nese stacked the odds against himself, and made a promise to his family to make it. And now he is THE Cruiserweight Champion. Now, for the first time in Nese’s reign, he defends against not just the determined Akira Tozawa but the sadistic submission specialist in Drew Gulak. The odds are against Nese, how he doesn’t have to lose the match to lose the title, but Nese will say the same thing he said back at Wrestlemania: “You can take your odds and shove ’em!” He is not going to give this title up that easily. Gulak and Tozawa will have to beat him and only him for it! At Stomping Grounds, Nese will fight to the very end because he is the Premier Athlete, and your WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
Akira Tozawa knows Tony Nese is tough and Drew Gulak is dangerous, but the Stamina Monster is tenacious. The Triple Threat means Tozawa must beat two men. When he does, he’ll become two-time WWE Cruiserweight Champion. As for Drew Gulak, “Terror never sleeps. Terror waits patiently, and then strikes without hesitation or remorse.” For too long, the Cruiserweight Crusader was too concerned with “the betterment of this wretched place.” All Gulak needed to do was look inward. “There is no hope for a better 205 Live, only a better Drew Gulak.” And the best version of Gulak isn’t one who worries about rules or order, but about pain and punishment! You can call Gulak cold, vicious and sadistic, but after Stomping Grounds, you will also call him champion. Just who comes away with the Cruiserweight title in this tough, tenacious and terrifying Triple Threat?!
What a great go-home for 205 Live! And I’m really excited to see another big match for the Cruiserweight Championship. I was a little worried they were going to make a 1v1 match of Gulak VS Tozawa, winner is the true contender, but a Triple Threat will definitely give this belt the match it deserves, and one that makes Stomping Grounds more interesting to watch. I really can’t be sure if Nese comes away with the belt now. Tozawa probably isn’t winning, but this is a big opportunity for Gulak to win it off of Tozawa so that he and Nese can take that Cruiserweight title to Extreme Rules or even Summerslam.
Meanwhile, the action we got tonight really was good stuff. Lucha House Party and the Singh Brothers have a great match, and it was a good choice for the Singhs to win. This prolongs the feud and will surely escalate things to a Tornado/No Disqualifications tag like most tag feuds build to on 205 Live. If only we had Cruiserweight Tag titles… The coming Jack Gallagher VS Mike Kanellis will be a great match, but Mike almost went Face by simply saying he is going to help put 205 Live on the map. All these guys deserve more attention, this show deserves more attention, and if Mike & Maria are the ones to help do it, more power to them. That main event was incredible, even with Daivari getting disqualified. His beating on Lorcan was a nice touch, though. I hope these guys go No DQ in the next one.
My Score: 8.3/10
